YOU might have noticed Ellis has launched a fun bid to turn £10 into a £10,000. It's not a new idea and it involves backing a short-priced selection then putting the winnings on the next tip and so on and so on.
Reaching £10,000 could take a while but it can be done. It requires patience and bottle because as your pot grows your stake gets bigger – but you of course can withdraw at any time.
Ellis launched with £10 on Neil Robertson in a snooker match this morning and got lucky as the Aussie ace won 5-4. So that's £12.50 in the bank and here's his second tip.
I'm having a go for a laugh and start with France Under-20s v Ghana (4pm) with my tenner on at 4-6 with McBookie.com.
ELLIS'S BET 2
Tennis ATP Hertogenbosch Stanislas Wawrinka v G Garcia-Lopez (1.30pm)
Wawrinka is on top form at the minute, doing well on the clay court at the French Open and I expect him to win his first grass title this week in Hertenbosch. He rips through the ball incredibly well and should be full of confidence against a considerably lower-ranked player in Garcia-Lopez. Lopez has played well this tournament but I can't see him troubling Wawrinka.
Bet 2: £12.50 on Wawrinka (2-7)
